Description: I've noticed that the new hotfix1 version requires root permission to mount and unmount volumes. In my case, I'm mounting as a regular user a volume in my home directory, and I don't understand why root permission is now required for this. Same applies to the unmount operation. Reverting to the previous package version solves the issue.

In keeping with another thing, I found there is a new patch file (veracrypt-fix-u64-gcc.patch) which is not available in at . When can we get it?

Thank you.

Yes, you're right, I just saw it is at I don't know how I overlooked it, but thanks for the clarification!

In keeping with the root permissions issue, is there any reason for this new behavior?

Thank you!
